Well, I'd say that he won it on the old man's bike, then unwon it when he was off the bike.Privateer wrote:Rumsas wrote:If you guys want to slam, but don't have the body/back for it.
Just do like Mr Landis and slam it, then reverse it.
He actually won the tdf on a old mans bike, hahaha
No, he didn't.

didn't use the bearings, just top cap. they won't sell you just the cap
A Veloflyte Headset Dust Cover + one of my carbon spacers (1-5mm or 2-5mm) on top of it.
I was concerned about the dust cover being a weak point, but it comes with metal shims so support it underneath.
Veloflyte Headset Dust Cover
Bontrager Standard Carbon Spacers
Top cap replaced (previously, alloy OEM cap) with no-name carbon (9g) and that has been replaced with the Bontrager carbon top cap that came with the Bontrager XXX Race Lite OS Stem. I've also switched the bolts (3g OEM for 2g bolt) and starnuts will be exchanged tomorrow "if" the one I have now is actually lighter than OEM).
With original 2.5mm spacer and top cap (I don't know if you can see it in the pictures, but in person, the more tapered Bonty cap and 1mm spacer make a HUGE difference, not to mention that the carbon looks a lot nice than the matte black Al cap):
With 1mm spacer & Bonty top cap. I'm going to file down the hard edge a bit to soften it up in order to taper it to meet the cap:
